The Board originally issued its ADA Accessibility Guidelines for transportation vehicles in 1991. New technologies and vehicles have been introduced into public transportation necessitating an update of the guidelines. This session will include a review of updates to the ADA guidelines for buses and vans and an overview of current research that will inform future rulemakings regarding circulation within a vehicle by people with mobility disabilities and other issues affecting accessibility to transportation vehicles.
